We’ve just completed a wonderful summer season at Carolwood Productions’ new home on the Mid Coast of Maine!
Please enjoy this highlight video showcasing just a few of the sights and locations here on the St. George Peninsula.
There are so many wonderful and unusual places to hike. Quiet canyons; cool, green stream sides, dramatic hilltops. A series of interconnected trails was recently highlighted in the City of Diamond Bar via an unusual method. We shot a series of Virtual, 360 degree tours for the city. These allow residents and visitors to explore the series of nature trail via the web in an immersive and compelling fashion.
A series of 27 Panoramic Virtual Tours were shot, stitched and compiled for the project. Each tour consists of 12 individual angles which are then used to create the seamless, virtual-reality world for beautiful viewing spots along the trails. These were then linked via an interactive graphic map with “hotspots”, which allows the user to jump to one of six individual trails within the city.
The tour is set up to be self-running, and viewers are encouraged to go “Full Screen” on their monitors for the most dramatic experience.
Please use this link to be transported to the site; and do a little “arm chair exploring” of these beautiful trails yourself!
How to make recycling used motor oil, well, interesting.
That was the challenge recently as we worked with the City of Diamond Bar to create this PSA (public service announcement) detailing what options local residents had as they recycled their motor oil.
A lively script was written, a shot list developed, and we were off to the races!
There is never a dull moment in the world of media creation; and those moments can sometimes be very tasty indeed!
We have been privileged to many “backstage” events and places in the course of filming and producing our client’s projects. A very delicious recent project was shooting a “Meet the Chef” segment for a culinary and locations website, RehearsalDinner.com. We enjoyed being involved with this chef’s activities as she created a beautiful and somewhat unique “Paella” dinner for a number of guests at a secret location!
The St Regis Monarch Beach Hotel provides the backdrop to a fabulous wedding celebration. A powerful narrative technique that can be employed when creating a wedding film is to open up the story with a prelude sequence that “foreshadows” the days events to come. This can help the viewer understand the scope of the setting, the people involved, and the excitement that is in store for the guests.
